A Tale of Preparedness: Newnan Family Rebuilds After Severe Tornado
Few weather events are more dangerous and terrifying than tornadoes—especially here in Georgia. During the spring storm season between March and April, the state records approximately 30 tornadoes annually according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. A tornado seemingly shows up in the blink of an eye, destroys, then disappears into thin air before anyone has been able to process the life-changing experience.
Such was the case with the tornado that swept through Newnan, Georgia just before midnight on Thursday, March 25. At a force of approximately 170 mph and just over a mile wide, this tornado will forever be etched into Newnan’s history.
